Ever walked into a place that smelled so good you broke into a smile without realizing? That's the way these three exceptionally fragrant peonies can enhance your garden design. You'll be able to follow your nose to see them in bloom. Plus, you'll have all the cut-flowers you'll need to fill your home with luminous and heady bouquets. Even after the bloom season ends, the foliage is lush and attractive. The Most Fragrant Peony Collection is low-maintenance and lasts for decades. It attracts beneficial pollinators to your borders, which is fun to watch in spring. Includes: Duchess De Nemours, Madame Emile Debatene and Festiva Maxima.
Peonies have few requirements: give them a sunny well-drained location, plant 2-4' apart, with the eyes (new buds at the crown) no more than 2" below soil level and apply fertilizer or compost in spring. They take a while to establish, often 3 years before the first bloom—but the wait is worth it. They are heirloom quality. Let them grow undisturbed and they will bring joy to you and your loved ones through the decades. Paeonia 'Festiva Maxima', 'Madame Emile Debatene', 'Duchess de Nemours'
